General Surgery

Surgery services provided at Mediclinic Welcare Hospital include 24 hour cover for the Accident and Emergency Department with facilities to perform major surgical procedures round the clock, including management of patients with peritonitis and polytrauma and laparoscopic procedures.

The department is also geared to perform a whole range of major elective general surgical procedures including gastrointestinal surgery, head and neck surgery, surgery of the limbs (eg. varicose veins), breast surgery and cancer surgery.

All operations are performed in four fully equipped modern operating theatres. The department also includes a Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) for the care of seriously ill patients. 

Outpatient services are available daily and many minor procedures can be performed in the OPD or day care ward to shorten the patient's stay in the hospital. Among such procedures are banding and injection of haemorrhoids (piles) and excision of small swellings.
